Published Aug. 28, 2005

MARLINS 4, EXPOS 1: Josh Beckett pitched seven strong innings and Miguel Cabrera hit his 31st homer, leading Florida. Only 3,923 fans were on hand for the opener of what is likely the Expos' final series in Montreal. The team is expected to be relocated for the 2005 season.

METS AT BRAVES, PPD.: The remnants of Hurricane Jeanne rained out the game. It is scheduled to be made up today as part of a doubleheader.
